Hopefully Sean was being a bit over the top. :)

A bomb threat is definately something to worry about, though.  I wish I 
remembered more of the details or a news article to substantiate, but what 
I do remember about a year ago was a bomb threat at the non-ghetto MAE-EAST 
facility in Vienna, VA (I remember we were all wondering why all the WCOM 
people were leaving the building).

If a bomb (threat) actually had occured, things would have definately
been unhappy.
